Mounting the Brush Condition Monitoring System Enclosure

This section covers the placement and mounting requirements for the Brush Condition Monitoring System enclosure.

Brush Condition Monitoring System Mounting Requirements

The Brush Condition Monitoring System (A) requires a minimum of two Unistrut rails (B) for mounting. Mount the enclosure as close to the exciter brushes as possible, while maintaining operator safety, to optimize the user experience. If desired, an optional auxiliary display (C) can be installed on the opposite side of the shaft from the primary enclosure. The auxiliary display uses the same enclosure and has the same mounting requirements as the primary enclosure.

Running Power to the Brush Conditioning Monitoring System

The Brush Condition Monitoring System has an internal enclosed AC/DC converter which requires power input of 100-240V AC at 60 Hz (250W max). The power output of the internal power supply is 24V, 10.4A DC (250W max). The power input cabling should be run to the Brush Condition Monitoring System in ¾ in trade-size, liquid-tight conduit (A). The enclosure has pre-installed ¾ in trade-size liquid-tight conduit adapters that can be used for the power cabling. If installing the auxiliary display, a ¾ in trade-size liquid-tight conduit should be run between the enclosures to run power, display, and serial cables (B).

Route the Antenna Cabling

The Brush Condition Monitoring System requires the use of an antenna to enable ideal communication to and from the Brush Health Sensors. The ideal antenna mounting location may vary between installations. If you are unsure about the placement of the antenna, refer to the Antenna Placement Mode section of this manual.

In most cases, the ideal antenna location will be inside the exciter housing. If this is the case:

  1. Drill a hole through the lower portion of the exciter housing (A).

  2. Mount the antenna to the inside of the exciter housing with its connector extending through the newly drilled hole.

  3. On the outside of the exciter housing, route a ¾ in trade size liquid-tight conduit from the antenna to the Brush Condition Monitoring System (B) to run the antenna cable (C).

Install Brush Holder Label Clips

Installing brush holder label clips can assist in easily identifying brush positions as they relate to the Brush Condition Monitoring System display. The label clips use an alphanumeric nomenclature to identify the row and path of each brush. For example, brush '2B' would refer to the brush located in row '2' and path 'B'.

To install the label clips:

  1. Orient the label clips (A) as shown.

  2. Guide the label clip (A) under the brush holder handle until you feel the label clip lock into place. The final resting position is shown here:
